A303 Thruxton/Andover (Hampshire) – Bridge Refurbishment – Weekend Closure Update
Work to the bridges at Thruxton Hill, Kimpton Quarley and Picket Twenty has now started.
To allow the waterproofing material beneath the carriageway surface to be replaced, we will need to fully close the A303 for entire weekend periods (9pm Friday through to 6am Monday).
These closures have been scheduled for the following weekends, but are subject to change:
Thruxton Hill/Kimpton Quarley
· Friday 15 to Monday 18 September – A303 EASTBOUND carriageway closed from the A338 Parkhouse Cross junction to the A343 Hundred Acre junction
· Friday 22 to Monday 25 September – A303 WESTBOUND carriageway closed from the A343 Hundred Acre junction to the A338 Parkhouse Cross junction
· Friday 3 to Monday 6 November – A303 EASTBOUND carriageway closed from the A343 Hundred Acre junction to the A3093 Picket Twenty junction
· Friday 1 to Monday 4 December – A303 WESTBOUND carriageway closed from the A3093 Picket Twenty junction to the A343 Hundred Acre junction
Please note that these dates are subject to change – confirmed dates will be displayed in advance on signs along the A303, on the Highways England website and via the media.
During the closures clearly signed diversions will be in place (see attached letter and poster). We are expecting these routes to be extremely busy, therefore alternative routes will be signed further afield for these long distance drivers travelling between the London/east area and the West Country.
Significant delays are expected during these weekend closure periods, and we are advising all road users to plan ahead of their journey to allow for extra time or avoid this route where possible.
We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption during our work. We will make every effort to manage noise levels and any additional lighting carefully to minimise the local impact.

Mayor Cllr Andy Williams, who’s chosen charity for his year in office is The Amesbury and Boscombe Down Link Scheme. Andy kicked off the appeal with a parachute jump. The tandem jump with The Red Devils parachute display team took place on the 5th of July. Andy said this was totally amazing and I can't thank the Red Devils enough for making it so easy.
Andy also said I chose the Link Scheme for all the outstanding work that the volunteers do in the community. The countless trips to hospitals, doctors or shopping, for those less fortunate to be able to take themselves for what ever reasons, is a service that has become very essential. Also the Link Scheme now have the new minibus which can take up to two people in wheelchairs, which is a great asset to the community and I hope any monies raised will help go to the on-going cost of running the service.
To date the jump has raised over £1200 and is a great start to the appeal. Andy would like to thank everybody who has donated and if anybody to wishes to give a donation they can through the Community & Visitors Centre at 2 Flower Court, Flower Lane Amesbury.
Further events are taking part to help raise money for the appeal, with a Mayor’s BBQ and a Gala Dinner later in the year.
Amesbury Town Council would like to thank Amesbury Area Board for its generous grant towards the replacement cost of road name signs in the town. Hamilton Close, Nicolson Close and Boscombe Road have already been installed. We are hoping to install Hamilton Close, Pains Way, Butterfield Drive, Archers Way, Countess Road South and Porton Road soon.
